When I clean after every time I go to the range, do I really need to do a big thorough cleaning with a separate solvent AND re-oil or should I just use an all-in-one if I plan on cleaning often? This is primarily a range gun.
I usually use an all in one like Rem oil for after a range trip. I use the Rem oil as more of a cleaner than a lube. For all moving parts I use something a little thicker, like Outers gun oil, or shooters choice FP-10.
I would do a big thorough cleaning about once a month, or two months, depending on how much you shoot, with quick cleanings in between.
